From the Show...


I stocked up on heaps of ds tape, picked up some beautiful papers (Authentique) and other bits and pieces, from CRAFT QUEEN (including some new colours in seam binding, a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, embossing folder, word stickers, Collections printers tray, Kaiser journaling tags, Kaiser tiny letter stickers, and a couple of big wax crayons (great value for doing the crayon resist technique!!!) these were the crayons that Rachel (Darkroom Door) used for her crayon resist demonstrations...and you'll be able to get them from CRAFT QUEEN in a few days.   I'll also be doing a tutorial on using them in CRAFT QUEEN's blog in a couple of days.



I came across lots of great findings for making jewellery, mostly from HERE


But my favourite find was this great stamp (by Stampabilities) from Dragonfly Crafts, I know it's a mounted stamp, but how could I resist LOL....

Did you get a chance to go?     I made it in Thursday, and I went back for seconds on Saturday (just for a couple of hours)!!!    I love the venue (Melbourne Exhibition Centre, known locally as Jeff's Shed -named after former State Premier Jeff Kennett)   If you did go, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, and if not, there's always next time : )

Great load of goodies there Vicky! I went on the Friday, but I think I only managed to get to around one quarter of the stalls!

I didn't seem to buy much stuff, but still managed to spend lots of $$$....as you do!
